I had no idea that stereo images could be used in medicine. It’s interesting that such an illusion that I’ve usually associated with entertainment can have such an important real-world use.
As for my own digital media, I would love to do more work with virtual reality content (I’m currently doing a VR project for one of my other classes). No matter which form of content I choose to make (videos taken with a stereoscopic camera, 3D games made in a game engine like Unity, etc.), the illusion of depth created by stereo images will be the key to making the media appear so life-like.
In addition, it would be interesting to try to make one of the flickering stereo images I’ve included above.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
